When In Ely, you have to stop here for the experience. If it's beer and steak you want, this is the place to go. I'm sure the rest of the menu is great but I never stray from the "Kickbutt sirloin". Great beer selection, great staff, and awesome nightly specials.

Food is good here. Have always gotten good food either steak or a burger. Prices are average for a steak house. If I want a good steak this is where I go when in ely.

Let me just start by saying our server, Kristen was awesome and handled the many tables by herself with patience and poise. (I counted 10 tables.) When we came in, it took almost 10 minutes to be seated because they had just the bartender and the one server working on a super busy Saturday lunch rush. We have been to... More

Excellent food and service! Would highly recommend. I visited in the off-season and there was still a healthy supply of locals in the restaurant...always a good sign!

Food was good, and the portions were huge! The menu has enough variety to satisfy tastes, so that returning on multiple occasions (which we did) still allowed us to try something new every time. Service is outstanding, and you can play pool for free!

The Steak House hosted a very large (30+) group of us for dinner. The staff did an excellent job with the difficult task of serving such a large group at once. One of the girls at our table did not like the chicken because it came with sauce on top and the waitress happily got her a new plate of... More

We stopped in for dinner and sat at the bar for a bit before we got seated. Very friendly bartender and patrons. We, of course, had steak and it was well prepared, the baked potato was a little undercooked, but the salad was very fresh. The service was also great.

Ordered the basic burger done to medium with cheese and bacon. I wanted to skip the fries and order the wild rice soup instead. We had six people in our party, including a 2 year old and a 6 year old. When the order came, my burger plate had fries and coleslaw on it. I thought maybe the kitchen just... More
